This is a fascinating old 340-page book with over 140 illustrations, including photos, star maps and diagrams, by a University of Denver astronomer who was the first director of its Chamberlin Observatory. In his preface he describes the book's contents this way: "The historical development of the science is sketched. An explanation of the apparent daily motion of the heavens is given. The chief constellations are set forth in detail, that the learner may have ample guidance in his endeavors to become acquainted with them. The reader is introduced to the astronomer, inspects an observatory, and becomes acquainted with the most important instruments and their uses." The book's cover has some stains that show its age, but it is otherwise in excellent condition. I'm offering it for $50 and I would accept checks from a well-rated Astromarter or USPS money orders. No Pay-Pal.
